In this session we put the first new plays – all based on the Red Riding Hood Story – up on the floor and tried them out!
This was a gloriously chaotic session and there wasn’t nearly enough time to rehearse and show. Still, there were some wonderful moments in the stories, some fantastic characters (and character names!) and some very comic lines of dialogue.
This has been a fast-track process to show the children all the stages in making a play. Now the plan is to go back to the beginning and work on creating original material based on the children’s own interests and ideas.
